What you'll learn in this photography class:

Learn the basics of Real Estate Photography and start developing a strong set skills in this field.

Tammy will take you through a variety of methods that are used in Real Estate-including lighting and HDR issues (high dynamic range). We will also focus on composition theory and how it applies to spaces as well as various methods for dealing with lighting areas in a home from simple to more challenging. 

Topics include:

  • How to approach the house
  • Standard shot list
  • Camera angles for interior shots
  • Composition rules with Real Estate
  • Methods to balance indoor shots with window light
  • Lighting conditions for exteriors in daylight and twilight
  • Color accuracy and color casts
  • Tips and tricks for dynamic photos
  • Gear recommendations from simple equipment for a basic shoot and options for upgrading
  • Camera and exposure settings, and more!

After the discussion portion, we’ll have a hands-on practice session taking photos of a beautifully styled home.  

Tammy will share a lot of valuable information. There is a very active REP community and Tammy will introduce you to various paths for getting involved and learning more.

What to bring:

  • Any camera will do, but for best results we recommend a digital SLR camera or a mirrorless camera with manual exposure controls with a wide-angle lens (10-20mm for digital DX SLR's, 12-24 mm for full frame/FX SLR's)
  • A circular polarizer filter
  • An external flash unit (if you have one)
  • A sturdy tripod with adjustable head

Prerequisites: It's recommended that you have knowledge of exposure basics and can adjust the exposure settings with your camera. If not, consider taking the Photo Basics - Getting Off Auto class first.
